When the rise of the coronavirus sent us home, the CALL Meetings Committee decided to host online happy hours. It has become a great way to raise a glass to discuss with working from home, fears and concerns about Covid, and chat about our favorite movie soundtrack.
As librarians, we are skilled in learning new technologies so everyone has caught onto Zoom quickly. It has also been great to include CALL members who are living out of state (California, Indiana, Wisconsin).
After the success of the first online happy hour, we have been holding them every three weeks on Zoom. We will be having our final summer happy hours on July 29 at 5:30 and August 20 at 12:30pm.
Committee members were Todd Hillmer (co-chair), Tami Carson (co-chair 2018), Carrie Port (co-chair 2019), Sheri Lewis and Keely Ward. Jessie LeMar was the board liaison.
The Meetings committee planned four business meetings for the 2018-19 year. Dates, locations, number of registrants for each business meeting are shown in the table below. Continue reading CALL Meetings Committee 2018-2019 Annual Report
